The Fauquier County community is invited to attend a 9/11 Remembrance Ceremony in Sumerduck.
The ceremony starts at 6 p.m. Sept. 11 at the U.S. Post Office at 5338 Sumerduck Road, across from the Sumerduck Ruritan Club. Representatives from American Legion Post 247, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7228, the Sumerduck Ruritan Club, Liberty High School's Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps and the county's public safety workers and others will participate in the ceremony.
Afterward, refreshments will be served across the street at the Ruritan Building.
The memorial is open to everyone, and was scheduled later in the afternoon for the benefit of people who work during the day, said organizer Darlene Constant.
"We all think it's a very important day that should be remembered by everyone, young and old," Constant said.
